Steam display at Canberra over Easter?

 
  Bevan Wall Deputy Commissioner

I understand that the ACT division of the ARHS are organising a "Steam Spectacular" for this coming Easter.  I hear that 1210 and 6029 will be on display at Canberra station. On their website I can see the details of the steam hauled trips that 3016 will be making but I can't find any mention of the other two locos. Can anyone confirm that 1210 and 6029 will be involved and provide some details? I know the 60 class is not yet ready to be in steam but 1210 could be.
Thanks,
BW

This page indicates that on Easter Monday 1210 is doing two trips to Queanbeyan and 6029 will be on display:

That doesn't say 1210 will be running to Queanbeyan. Just that she will be on display. The trains will be hauled by 3016.

And 1210 Will not be in steam as i read the sunset steam trip is a funraiser to go towards 1210's restoration.

I beg to differ. My info, which is very reliable, is that she will be in steam. She's just not yet certified to run following the repairs to her wheels.

It would appear that 1210 is now mainline certified again, as it made an appearance as 2nd loco on the trip to Bungendore on 31/3.

I would like to post some pictures from the week end in Canberra but the Railpage system will not allow any uploads from my files within my computer if anyone can advise on how to upload the pictures I have please advise!Sad

Sure.

I'd recommend that you start a Flickr account, and upload you photos to there. That way all you have to do is post the HTML coding from the "Share" feature, or post a link to your gallery. You can no longer upload photos direct to Railpage.

Give us a yell if you run into trouble. 8)

I had no idea 1210 was on the train, so it was a nice surprise!

Great to see 1210 giving her younger sibling a bit of a push!
